How did you find your way to Dr. Karyl McBride’s book Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Maybe it has been a long journey, or perhaps you just happened upon it and saw yourself. However you found your way, my goal as a certified clinician in Dr. McBride’s model of recovery for daughters of narcissistic mothers is to guide you through your own process of self-awareness and change.
I am a licensed psychologist in Lexington, Massachusetts with 20 years’ experience treating children, adolescents, and adults. I received my doctorate in psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology in New York City. During my career, I have worked in psychiatric hospitals and community mental health centers, which has allowed me to learn about the needs of people suffering from many forms of mental illness.
Since I began my own practice in 2000, I have worked with parents, providing guidance about the challenges of raising children, from a toddler’s tantrums, to a teenager’s testing the waters of high-risk behavior. In addition, I work with women struggling to balance the demands of family, work, and self-care, in a world in which there never seems to be enough time.
Daughters of narcissistic mothers may be driven by self-doubt, or have difficulty slowing down as they strive to prove themselves. They may have no model of the balance of warmth and structure children need to thrive. These painful issues may hit home the hardest when a daughter becomes a mother herself.
Given my experience working with children and parents, I have a special interest in helping you understand how being raised by a narcissistic mother has impacted your own parenting, or your choice to become a mother at all. Together, we will help you understand your past so you can create the life you want now.
